Hey friends, today I am sharing the full tutorial on how to print this free printable on fabric and then create it into a pillow! Elf season is near and it’s my kids most favorite part of the Christmas season – so it only seems appropriate to notify everyone that our house is under Elf Surveillance!
You are able to download the printable and just post it in a frame if you like! But, today I am sharing how to print the image on fabric and make a decorative pillow with it!
First up – the printable! So fun, right? It’s available in blue or green!
Now onto the tutorial on how to print it on fabric to put it on a pillow!
This is remarkably easy to do! First, cut a piece of freezer paper to 8.5×11.
Next, iron the fabric you will be printing on.
Then place your freezer paper with the shiny side toward the fabric.
With the iron on the hottest setting press the freezer paper onto the fabric.
Next cut the fabric to the 8.5×11″ size.
The freezer paper should be stuck to the fabric now.
Place the fabric in the printer, so that it will print on the fabric side. Each printer is different, so if you don’t 100%, just test it on paper first. My printer took it fine, but I did have to help guide it the first few seconds to make sure it fed through correctly and easy.
It looks amazing when printed onto the fabric!
Then, because I wanted to give it a stitched look, I cut around the image and pinned it into place on my pillow cover. I didn’t want it to fray, so I sewed it down with my machine with the same color thread so it would blend in.
Then, I wanted to give it a little more pop, so I decided to use embroidery floss and sewed a little hand stitching around the design before I sewed it into a pillow.
The pillow covers are a piece of cake to make. You can check out the full tutorial HERE!
This project turned out so fun, don’t you think?
